Drug testing in Surrey

AlphaBiolabs has more than 15 years’ experience of working in the drug testing sector. We offer a range of options to suit different needs, including hair strand and nail testing which looks at whether an individual has misused substances at any point during a period of weeks or months.

Oral fluid testing analyses samples of saliva to find out whether someone has taken drugs in the last 48 hours, while urine testing is also an effective way of potentially ruling out immediately whether someone is under the influence of narcotic substances.

Alcohol testing in Surrey

There are a number of different types of alcohol testing on offer depending on your needs. These include breath tests, which can determine how much alcohol someone has in their system at the time of testing.

Blood tests involve the sample being checked for biomarkers which will indicate whether someone has been drinking alcohol to an excessive level within the previous 4 weeks. AlphaBiolabs can also look at someone’s long-term relationship with alcohol by analysing a sample of their hair or analysing nail clippings.

AlphaBiolabs’ sample collectors can also fit an ankle bracelet known as SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitoring®. This innovative method can check an individual’s consumption of alcohol from 1 day to as many months as needed. Via transdermal testing, the tamper-proof bracelet can detect whether the wearer has been drinking through contact with their skin. Monitoring is carried out every 30 minutes, 24 hours a day for as long as the SCRAM CAM® bracelet is worn.
